*Or, nobody understands the need for a big stash.
I was out with my housemates last evening, discussing an upcoming soiree, when suddenly I was looked upon with utter disgust. Horror, even. I was told that they were in the basement and saw my yarn. I was confused until they explained that they didn't understand why I had so much yarn. Frankly, I didn't understand them not understanding...
Having a yarn stash is part of the fun of knitting. It's composed of my leftovers, my never-got-starteds, sale yarns and my had-to-haves. And at one bookshelf's worth, I thought my stash was pretty modest.
I don't collect shot glasses, or DVDs, or vintage wine. I collect yarn. And it makes me happy.
